The visit to Keukenhof was my favourite part – seeing the tulips and daffodils in the fields and gardens was beautiful.
Delivered what it said on the tin! Perfect group size, splendid crew and well looked after.
Every day was magical
As a 73 year old, I was apprehensive that I would be able to keep up, but I was fine and the Guide, Henke was especially considerate. The itinary was fantastic and visiting the various places of interest meant that we were not cycling all day, but enjoying regular stops.
What a charming and knowledgeable Tour Leader we were lucky enough to have. The fact that he spoke such perfect English was a bonus for me. He had a wonderful sense of humour and was most kind and thoughtful.
All days were excellent, lots of local interest, lovely towns Harlem and Leiden, amaising flowers at the Keukenhof and excellent stops for coffee and cakes and a visit to the Aalsmeer flower auction was mind boggling.
I really enjoyed this holiday.
A lot of different interesting things were packed into a short time. Cycling in Holland is good as the scenery is attractive and it’s flat! Guide and boat crew good. Nice group of people who got on well.
Contact throughout the booking process was good. It was a good idea to warn me by email that the travel details were coming by post. I liked being contacted by phone just before the holiday to check I was OK.
Fabulous holiday in every way. Fred was a great leader, the weather was perfect, the boat, (Jelmar) was wonderful, our captain was friendly and helpful, and the itinerary was brilliant.
Very well fitted boat with excellent saloon. Our cabin, though snug, was perfectly fine, with good en-suite facilities, heating and a plentiful supply of hot water.
Fred was a brilliant leader who was always concerned that we enjoyed each day to the full. He prepared us well the night before each ride, and ensured that the pace suited everyone. His knowledge and enthusiasm greatly enhanced the whole trip. He was extremely dedicated throughout.
The whole itinerary was super, all the excursions were most interesting and varied. We enjoyed the whole experience and would happily do it all again.
